Squalor to Scholar | The collection was inspired by two true stories, one of a lady named Chris Kitch who was homeless in London for 30 years of her adult life but managed to still turn her life around and get a PhD, the other was that of an East African man named Eeyeul, who was also homeless in New York. I fell in love with the photographs of him and what he liked to wear. I used the struggle and success of their stories to inspire the drapes and unusual shapes within the outfits.
